The Community Grants committee awarded an Education Program grant to the Larimer Humane Society.  Their mission is to further the compassionate, safe & responsible relationship between animals & people.  Our $2,500 grant will be used to expand their Humane Education Program which works to promote the responsible care & treatment of animals.  Accepting the check was Lori O'Day, Director of the Humane Education program.
During this month's convention, President Elect Del Benson received an award from the Wildlife Society for his writings about environment and peace, published in our Rotary Club Peace Building Newsletter.  Del was also part of an international book launch.  He and colleagues authored a chapter about wildlife management by landowners in Africa, Europe and US with a rating system for evaluating contributions to overall conservation.
October 9th, RCFC welcomes for the first time, the 15th, and first female president of Colorado State University, Joyce McConnell.  Kirvin Knox will introduce our distinguished guest.  Ms. McConnell is proud to lead one of our nation’s best land grant universities and to embody the progress CSU has made in embracing the diversity of its campus community.
Last week there was no Wednesday RCFC meeting due to the annual Teacher(s) of the Year Awards held Tuesday at the Fort Collins Marriott.  Co-Teacher of the Year Cesar Fuentes (4th-grade teacher at Harris Bilingual School) inspired us with his personal journey (born in the US, returned to Mexico at 11 months old, returned to the US in 3rd Grade speaking no English...), and his dedication.  He closed with an emotional 'Thank You' to his parents, in Spanish.    
The first annual Wesley Award was announced.  Named in honor of Dr. Robert Wesley Titley, the Award is given to a graduate student in Counseling Psychology at Colorado State University.  This year’s $5000 was presented to Morgan Boyle.  The award was established by RCFC member, Bonnie Titley in honor of her late husband.
